Happiness in an old school French village

By Jonathan Glover on 30-Sep-2023

Just like the France of my young days; a meandering lane off the main street leads to the old school house, thoughtfully resurrected and recovered from the inky days of someone else's childhood. The courtyard is shady cool for breakfast coffee, and then evening drinks idly contemplating endless views of the fields and sloping Occitan hills. Funny the French don't mention this region much - maybe the same way they keep the best wine and cheese for themselves . . . But I digress; the pool is devilishly tempting and we don't resist, while the house is solid, welcoming and with only the merest echoes of chalk dust in the air. I imagine the long gone urchins looking down at me in their ancienne ecole, wide eyed and incredulous - and I smile. Nous reviendrons

We’re so pleased l’Ancienne École evoked such memories for you and you appreciated the house, pool and views.. A bientôt… nous espérons.

So tranquil, so comfortable

By Bryan Shaw on 10-Sep-2023

The old school feels like a home from home, not just a holiday gite. It is very well equipped inside with a good kitchen, English TV and loads of books, and outside with a great pool and an eating patio with outstanding views and an under cover area for when (if) it rains. Peace and quiet on tap. Loved it.

We’re so pleased you enjoyed the comforts of l’Ancienne École. We look forward to welcoming you back next year for another holiday here.

We had such a wonderful week at L'Ancienne Ecole - so much so we have rebooked for two weeks next summer. The most beautiful house, garden and pool - it was difficult to tear ourselves away to explore more of the surrounding area. We have so many happy memories of star gazing and storm watching and spent many happy hours reading and playing games on the terrace. Thank you - we can't wait to return next year.

Thank you very much for your kind review. It will be a pleasure to welcome you back again next year.
